7:03 am
welcome to "cbs this morning." as you wake up in the west, donald trump is about 30 minutes away from delivering a long awaited attack speech against hillary clinton. yesterday clinton mocked trump's track record as a businessman and said his economic policy would put the united states back into a recession. >> we spoke with donald trump yesterday at his headquarters in trump tower. he defended his business credentials and addressed the fact he's millions behind clinton in fundraising. >> you saw the numbers. hillary clinton and her campaign allies have spent $23 million in eight battleground states on television advertising. the trump campaign has spent zero. >> isn't that impressive? >> do you need to fight back? >> let me ask you, isn't it impressive? we're even and she's spending $23 million and i'm spending -- i get no credit for that. when i spent less money than anybody else and won the primaries. in new hampshire i spent a million dollars and a certain opponent spent $8 million and i won in a landslide. nobody said, gee, he did it
7:04 am
without spending the money. that's called good business practices. i don't know how you can spend -- by the way, we're raising quite a bit of money. i'm raising for the party. i'd rather spend my own money. to me it's simpler. you don't need to spend a billion two. she's going to spend $300 million a month. you're talking about like four months. and i just -- i talked to my people all the time and say why do you have to spend a billion dollars. it doesn't make sense. >> she's got $42 million in the bank, you've got a million dollars in the bank, how do you run -- >> the race. >> the campaign. >> that's from a filing in all fairness that only took into account one day. i don't want to devote the rest of my life to raising money from people. when she raises money every time she raises money she's making deals. can i be ambassador to that, can i do that, make sure my business is taken care of. give me a break. all the money she's raising, that was blood money. i was one of the biggest donors.
7:05 am
i gave a lot of money to the party. i gave a lot of money to everybody. i was a very big donner. i understand the system better than anybody. look, she's getting tremendous amount of money from wall street, couldn't take care of wall street. getting money from lots of people. she's going to take care of those people. part of my campaign is that this money is being spent and she's making deals with this money. >> she said your economic policies would create a trump recession. >> no, we're going to create an absolute unbelievable country. we're going to put people back to work again. we're not going to allow countries to steal our businesses. >> the current plan you put forward independent economic analysts have looked at it and said it would add $30 trillion to the deficit because you're going to reduce taxes. you're not going to cut entitlements. there's some questions about -- >> bring back jobs, bring back businesses. we're going to have a lot of people coming to the country. >> how? how do you do that?
7:06 am
>> companies now are leaving the united states, corporate inversion, they are leaving the united states. we have $5 trillion sitting out there because they can't bring the money back. can't get it in because there's no mechanism to bring it in and tack is so high. i'm going to bring tremendous amounts of money, tremendous amounts of jobs, tremendous amounts of companies. yes, the tax is going to be cut from the highest taxed nation anywhere in the world to a fairly low tax. not the lowest in the world but to a fairly low tax. >> hillary clinton called you the king of debt. >> she didn't call me, i called myself king of debt. i'm great with debt. nobody knows debt better than me. i made a fortune using debt. if things don't work out i renegotiate debt. that's a smart thing not a stupid thing. >> how do you renegotiate the debt. >> you go back and say, guess what, the economy crashed, i'll give you back half. i like debt for me. i don't like debt for the country. i like debt for my company but i don't like debt for the country. for the country we have $19 trillion in debt. it's going to be very soon $21
7:07 am
trillion -- not billion, $21 trillion in debt. i will tell you, we are sitting on a time bomb. hillary clinton doesn't have a clue. president obama has pretty much doubled the debt since he's been in office. somebody is going to pay a big price. we have to start chopping that debt down. >> janet yellin you know, chairman of the federal reserve blasted you for saying the u.s. could load up on debt and make a deal with creditors if the economy soured. she said there would be very severe consequences if an elected president tried to renegotiate the nation's debt. >> i wouldn't renegotiate the debt. i'd negotiate -- if i do a deal in a corporation as an example and the economy goes bad, i'll oftentimes renegotiate that debt. that's a different thing. that's a corporate thing. other people like me, very big people in the world of business, they do that. no, i wouldn't do that but i think it could be a good time to borrow and pay off debt, borrow debt, make longer-term debt. >> there's no doubt you have broken all the rules in this race.
7:08 am
i think what people are looking back and seeing, this time in the campaign, barack obama heavily outspent mitt romney. in the campaign. george w. bush heavily outspent john kerry. you said history doesn't matter. >> it's nice to be funded. when i get funded, i have to go ask people for money. when i ask them for money, they want face. everybody wants favors. that's the way it is. clearly clinton is giving a lot of favors. she's going to be owned by wall street, the bank, a lot of different groups or she wouldn't be raising the money. i don't like doing that. i would rather say it like it is. like it is, i don't want to spend a lot of money. >> despite that the trump campaign is trying to ramp up its fundraising. for the first time the candidate sent an e-mail on behalf of his campaign asking for donations. he says he will personally match every dollar donated within 48 hours up to $2 million. >> like trump making an argument
7:09 am
for public financing. >> why was the campaign chairman there saying you're going to match $2 million. he said, i am. he's already london his campaign $43 million. >> given his campaign staff and property and company a lot of money. >> he's got a plan. on capitol hill hillary clinton is sitting down this morning with house democrats. nancy cordes is at the capital outside the room where the meeting is happening. nancy, good morning. >> good morning. we're expecting her here any moment now. she's meeting with house democrats who are delighted about her new focus on donald trump's business record. they believe this highlighting all the questions about his lawsuits and taxes and charitable giving will help to neutralize his biggest selling point, his financial savvy. >> the united states of america doesn't do business trump's way. he's written a lot of books about business. they all seem to end at chapter 11. >> clinton argued trump's success has come at the expense of average workers and that his
7:10 am
financial proposals are half baked. >> he calls himself the king of debt. his tax plan sure lives up to that name. >> while she was speaking, trump was holding a closed-door meeting with evangelical leaders where he and to raise question about his opponents faith. >> she's been in the public eye for years and years, and yet there's no -- there's nothing out there. there's like nothing out there. it's going to be an extension of obama but it's going to be worse. with obama you had your guard up. >> several of the organizers held a press conference afterwards defending trump but declining to offer an endorsement. >> i'm interested to see what he's going to do with one of the most conservative platforms the gop has had. >> reporter: after her meeting on capitol hill clinton will head to raleigh, north carolina, where she is going to be delivering a speech outlining her alternatives to donald trump's economic proposals. he wants to slash corporate
7:11 am
taxes while she wants to impose an exit tax on companies that move overseas. >> thanks, nancy. with us is mark leibovich, chief correspondent for new york managazine up coming story gop "face the nation." republican leaders contend with donald trump and the greatest identity crisis in their party's modern history. welcome. >> thanks, charlie. >> before that you just saw the interview norah did with donald trump. your reaction to what trump said? >> i think the piece on the fundraising is very, very effective for him because it's a bad story for him. a bad story this week, the fact he's so completely outraised. he turns that around and says campaign financing, campaign fundraising, asking for money is unseemly. i'm not engaging it. i'm a lean thinking sort of business person. this is why i'm not doing it. >> at the same time alarming gop over trump's war chest of the people who provide support in a national general election are saying, we're concerned he
7:12 am
doesn't show any regard for how little money, as norah pointed out, is in his campaign chest. >> i can confirm that alarm is real. i can also say he will say, look, these are political people. i'm not a political person. these are people who played the same game many, many years. i'm playing different game -- >> explain why it does matter in terms of the ground game. does it matter? >> traditionally it does. he can say i'm going it sit up in my office and generator tv and it's going to do the same thing as in the primary. in the real world in swing states like ohio you need a presence where you can actually get voters out, do the day to day campaign. he has not been called upon to do that. >> he does seem to think he doesn't need the gop machine and up until now he hasn't. can he continue with that? >> as a receipt or calamari, yes, he can. as a practical matter, he can't. he's essentially outsourcing maybe 80, 90% of his campaign
7:13 am
fundraising, day to day, apparatus to the rnc. he needs them desperately. he can only do it to a point. >> you spent time with rnc, tell us what you saw that's relevant. >> look, rnc is an apparatus, the party. they have to sort of make this thing work. in a way they can't make any pryn principled stand and say we don't support our nominee. they have to stand with him. it's a young tumultuous marriage. they are ticking each other off every day. i have no idea how it's going to work. >> contributed to lewandowski's resignation. >> i think a lot of things contributed to that. that's been going on a long time. the rnc was the least of his problem. >> rnc, you spent a lot of time with reince priebus. >> eyes, belly of a toad. mark, that seems unusually happen. >> at penn station the first
7:14 am
person i saw was reince priebus. the first thing i want to mention, confirm, i want to reiterate, he actually looked great, clear, he had a bad night. >> i was going to say we've all had those. >> are you taking back those remarks? >> i think i might. in a future version. >> all right. that's what you do. >> i've got to be stand up here. >> now it's in print forevermore. >> just been on national television. >> taking it back. >> thanks, everyone. >> all right. california firefighters worked through the night trying to stop a pair of dangerous wildfires burning about a mile apart. the fires forced hundreds outside los angeles to leave their homes. they are now threatening to merge. at least 21 wildfires have burned more than 130,000 acres in the hot, dry west. mariah villarreal. >> the good news here, temperatures jumped back a bit.

tsa. everybody wants to do a good job for our customers, but we've got some challenges, and we need to do better. >> i have one small pet peeve. just personal. a number of times recently i have been at the airport ready to get on my plane and they say we have to wait for the crew. that happens a lot. part of that is they're coming off a plane that's getting delayed and they have trouble getting to the airport. they slept late. [ laughter ] >> you must be flying somebody other than southwest airline. >> can you please give your personal cell phone to charlie rose? >> you go into mack arthur. >> you know, southwest has been famous for being a great operator for 45 years in addition to being the largest in the country and offering low fares. through the month of may our on-time performance is above 80%. our folks did a great job there. >> your customer service is off

the charts. when people talk about southwest. number one, you don't charge for two checked bags and you get that for free. you don't charge for changing your seat. i was charged $200 for changing a seat, but people say you're leaving a lot of money on the table, mr. kelly. why do you think that's important to do? >> well, you know, that may be true. i don't believe that that's the case. i think we've reearned a lot of fans and a lot of loyalty over a long period of time because we treat people right. we're proud of the fact that we're america's low fare leader and have been for a long time. we work very hard to keep our costs low so we can keep our fares low and we don't want to surprise our customers with a gotcha. there's no nickel and diming and we're very proud of that. i think that earns us more customers. i think if we started charging the extra fees we would lose more customers than we would add in fees. >> jetblue just added mint condition.
8:37 am
would you consider something like that? >> no. that's really not part of what we do. we focus taking care of every single customer. we have an all-coach cabin and no second-class customers on southwest airlines. everybody is important, and we also focus on short to medium-haul flights. we don't have any ultra-long haul flights. it works very well for us and we're the largest airline. >> i never think of it as second class when you're riding in first class and the seats are bigger and when you have a bigger bottom it's greatly appreciated. >> or if you're 6'3". >> bigger bottom, 6'3". >> we make every one of our seats comfortable. everybody's bottoms. >> let's talk about cuba. when will it start? what's the idea there? >> we're ready to go. we're waiting on the usdot to make the final awards for havana. the other cities that we've been for the slots are all awarded at this point, but havana is key

and hopefully we'll hear something in july, and we can get flights launched this year. i think it's very exciting. >> daily flights? >> it will be daily flights. what we propose side flights from fort lauderdale, orlando and tampa to varadero, santa clara and havana. >> you have raised questions about the air traffic control system and it's outdated and needs reemploy vaing. what are the concerns about passenger safety and plane safety. what needs to be done? >> it's the greatest system money can buy during world war irk i so it is vastly outdated. no one disagrees with that. i think where there is disagreement is how to move forward and we've been working -- our country has been working for decades to try to modernize the system. it's not going to happen at the current pace so we need to reform the faa and set it up as a not for profit corporation and have a board of directors --
8:39 am
>> but is that system making travel more difficult for me? it's less safe? what's the concern? >> it is not less safe, but in order to keep it safe it becomes less and less and less efficient. so if you look at your flight times today compared to even 20 years ago it will take you longer to get from new york to washington. >> the faa does say this, gary, i don't mean to interrupt you, but the clock is ticking. it is significant progress modernizing the world's busiest and most complete aviation industry despite budget cuts. do you agree? >> no. i think our colleagues in the faa are clearly to be applauded for the efforts that they put forth. they are clearly making some progress, but we have a very, very long way to go, and as they admit in that statement it's against very significant obstacles and odds towards

making progress, so we need to take down those barriers. it is a multibillion-dollar e noort is confronting us and we need it now, not 25 years from now if then. the only way to make progress is to reform the faa. >> do you have wi-fi on all your flights? >> we have wi-fi on all of the aircraft that are the next generation boeing 747. >> it depends on which plane? >> we have about 115 classic 737s that do not have the wi-fi, and all of those will be retired in september of next year. ? all right. >> gary kelly. thank you. >> i had stopped flying southwest because they don't let me choose my seats with my kids and i flew and damian thomas is one of your flight attendants and i am now a southwest fan because of damian. >> i hung onto it. >> i'm telling you, this guy was so good. >> team damian right here. she is highlighting -- she's
